Hi I'm Tyler

I'm an economist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work as an economics researcher. I spent two years preaching the gospel in Japan as a Mormon missionary. I love watching and playing any and all sports, spending time with my wife, children, and friends, and speaking Japanese.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I felt the power of God tell me that the Book of Mormon is true. I'm still a Mormon because I continue to have experiences that reaffirm my original feelings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others whenever possible by being kind and treating others with respect, even if they don't share the same beliefs as me.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Tyler
Mormons believe that God has a body of flesh and bone, just like ours. God is immortal and all-knowing. He has all power and abides by all of the laws of nature. He created us in His own image, which is why we have bodies similar to His. We have the opportunity to become like Him and receive immortal bodies of our own if we make correct choices in this life.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Tyler
Mormons pay tithing, which is equal to 10% of their income, because God asked us to. Mormons believe that sacrifice brings growth, and tithing is one small way that we can grow through sacrifice. Tithing also helps fund the operation of the church. God gave us all that we have, yet He only asks for 10% of it back. That reasoning makes it even easier to pay tithing. Show more Show less
